Located in the foothills of South Carolina, Anderson University is an innovative, entrepreneurial, premier comprehensive, liberal arts institution affiliated with the South Carolina Baptist Convention that highly values both the liberal arts and professional studies.

Anderson University recognizes three paths for faculty employment: annual appointment, professional path, and tenure track. Faculty hired for annual appointment are evaluated on mission fit, and teaching and learning. They begin employment at the rank of instructor with the opportunity to promote to senior lecturer. Faculty in the Professional Path focus on teaching and learning and are evaluated on mission fit, teaching and learning, and service; and they are able to promote professorial ranks. After six years of exemplary service, faculty on the Professional Path become eligible for multi-year contracts. Faculty on tenure track focus initially on teaching and learning, but they are evaluated on mission fit, teaching and learning, service, and scholarship. Tenure-track faculty promote through professorial ranks and are eligible for tenure status in year six.
A terminal degree in Early Childhood Education and college teaching experience is preferred. The successful candidates will demonstrate knowledge of the discipline, experience in early childhood educational settings, and will be fully supportive of the goals, values and strategic direction of the University. Candidates with a strong Christian value system, lifestyle, and commitment to the integration of faith and learning are encouraged to apply.
Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. To ensure full consideration, please send a letter of application, curriculum vita, statement of teaching philosophy, and contact information for three references to the name and address listed below:
